Warhorse Studios To Release Kingdom Come: Deliverance On PC And Next-Gen Consoles
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
Nearly 18 months after its inception, independent video game development house Warhorse Studios have announced details of its debut title, Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Coming to PC and next-gen consoles in 2015 the game is an open world action-adventure role-playing game featuring blockbuster production values, a nonlinear story and revolutionary, first-person melee combat.
Leveraging decades of combined experience in AAA game development, including titles in the Mafia, Crysis, ArmA and Operation Flashpoint franchises, the creative talent powering Warhorse Studios is well-versed in pushing the boundaries of RPG storytelling in sprawling, immersive environments.
“The team’s ambition for Kingdom Come: Deliverance is growing this ever-maturing sandbox genre in a believable, real-world context and scope,” remarked studio Creative Director Dan Vávra. “To that end, we’re harnessing CryENGINE 3, nonlinear narrative, varied freedom in character progression, and a consequence-laden living world in ways that have never been possible until now.”
Rooted within the Holy Roman Empire during the late Middle Ages, Kingdom Come: Deliverance promises a first-person seat to a harsh and brutal power struggle for the throne. As players traverse expansive, strikingly detailed locales, they’ll grapple with a range of period-accurate fighting techniques, horseback combat, open-field sieges, and large-scale battles, all while developing relationships and a reputation that will inform the greater story. Kingdom Come: Deliverance promises no magic, high fantasy or mythical overtones – it draws its inspiration instead from historically authentic characters, themes, and warfare.
Further details for Kingdom Come: Deliverance will be released on January 20th, 2014. With such a talented team behind the game we’ve got high hopes for this one and we’re certainly excited to hear news of a new IP in today’s current sequel loving market.
